It’s a Rave!

upcoming movies Room 237 Rodney Ascher movie review Entertainment Weekly Cannes Film Festival Entertainment Weekly rhapsodizes over Rodney Ascher’s surprise hit film: “Room 237, a documentary that consists entirely of super-fans of The Shining talking about the movie’s secret themes, hidden clues, and resonant eccentricities — a veritable Kubrickian Da Vinci code of underlying networks of meaning — is an amazing experience, because it lures you into seeing The Shining as a kind of feature-length studio-made Zapruder film. Some of what its subjects have to say is nutty, and some of it might be described as advanced paranoia — like the tendency to ascribe deep meaning to continuity errors (a character’s pants changing from shot to shot; a disappearing chair behind Jack Nicholson). But a lot of Room 237 consists of incredibly passionate and savvy and audacious film criticism. It’s criticism infused with the power of conspiracy theory.” And that’s just THE BEGINNING of Owen Gleiberman’s review. Read the whole thing here.
